new beginnings.

 Top: Lulus Blazer: Thrifted Pants: F21 Belt: F21 Boots: Steve Madden
Well the first week of school has come and gone! This was the first week, of my last semester for my undergraduate degree... was that confusing haha? This May I will be graduating and I couldn't be more thrilled. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel :) I can't stop thinking about this summer because Trevor and I will have the summer completely to ourselves before Law School starts up for him, and before I start even more school. So we plan on having a fun packed couple of months!
It is amazing how time flies right on by! I can't believe I will be graduating because that means my little sister will be graduating from high school! There is just no way my little baby sister is that old... because last time I checked she was about 10... yup 10. I have 2 sisters and 3 brothers, and when we were younger and all  living under the same roof, we use to talk about how things would be when we were older, what we wanted to be doing, where we think we would be. It is just crazy to see all those conversations becoming reality. Four of us now married, two with kids, one a mission, and the last one ready to leave the nest. I am loving watching my family grow up into the people they have always wanted to be. Watching them achieve their goals, and going for the things they want. A big family means a lot of amazing examples.

  7. Happy beginning of the end of your undergraduate career! So many adventures await once college is over, promise. (Though it sounds like you guys have plenty of adventures already planned, and you don't need my assurances!)

  13. Isn't it funny how we can grow older, but noone around us does. We always refer to them as the same age as we remember. I do it all the time too:)

    And love your outfit. Those boots...ahhhh
